(NaturalNews) It is becoming clearer and clearer why the Big Pharma-owned corporations and crooks wanted so badly for Hillary Clinton to be elected president. She was and is a shill for their chemicals and President-elect Donald Trump could very well be the antithesis of such. In recent years, there has not been a single presidential candidate aside from Trump to stand up to the pharmaceutical industry, but that is exactly what he has done.

By merely speaking out against Big Pharma, President Donald J. Trump has completely changed the tide. Shortly after an interview with the Washington Post in which Trump criticized the industry, Big Pharma lost almost $25 billion in the span of twenty minutes. Should Trump continue that trend, it is very possible that the empire could crumble. Considering how obvious it is that Trump hates Big Pharma, that could happen sooner rather than later.

At a press conference, President-elect Trump stated, “Our drug industry has been disastrous. They’re leaving left and right. They supply our drugs but they don’t make them here, to a large extent. And the other thing we have to do is create new bidding procedures for the drug industry, because they’re getting away with murder. Pharma has a lot of lobbies, a lot of lobbyists, a lot of power.” Trump went on to explain that “there’s very little bidding on drugs. We’re the largest buyer of drugs in the world, and yet we don’t bid properly. We’re going to start bidding. We’re going to save billions of dollars over a period of time.”

For those who have already convinced themselves that Donald Trump is a complete bust that will destroy the United States as we know it, take a look at how he could potentially destroy Big Pharma’s stranglehold and reconsider your position. He has his flaws, certainly, but there is no denying the fact that he has been the only politician in his position to have the bravery to take on the pharmaceutical industry head-on.

Donald Trump has promised that he is going to make America great again and one of the easiest ways to do that is by making America significantly healthier. By sucking the obscene profits out of Big Pharma, Trump would make significant strides to damage the opioid and pharmaceutical addictions that are causing problems throughout the United States, despite not receiving much coverage from the mainstream media.

One of the biggest issues facing our country today is the apparent lack of concern over physical and mental health. They are constantly swept under the rug and disregarded as being no big deal or a personal problem. If we, as a collective, want our country to prosper, then we have to look at exactly why these issues exist. While there is quite a bit of personal responsibility there, the lack of transparency regarding pharmaceutical drugs is what leads to many people becoming addicted to them without ever realizing that such a fate was even a possibility.

While Trump is certainly leading the fight against Big Pharma, it is up to us everyday citizens to ensure that we do our part as well. Now that the corruption within the industry is finally receiving mainstream media thanks to the president-elect’s comments, it is easier than ever to speak out against the dangers caused by those peddling addictive chemicals to unsuspecting Americans. Now is the time to fight back — so what are we waiting for? (Follow more news about Big Pharma at Natural News.)

    I don’t see him actually saying anything about addressing the pharma crap, other than saying they’re not making enough money.

    • We’ll see if Big Pharma actually continues to lose value, if not…just another swindle.

    • How about giving him some time? This is is 2nd day as president and what did Obama or Bush do?

  • I’m surprised you or Trump didn’t mention returning back to our Biblical based diet and one more organic in nature and encourage each American to grow their own gardens.

    Not only will this make America healthy and great again (not too mention more independent) but it would also prevent mass starvation when the SHTF.

    • Good news!

      Trump just had a really “productive” meeting with Bayer-Monsanto, about an $8b deal or something like that.

      • Bayer, poisoning you since WW1.

        So like, what’s people’s logic there? “Oh I remember bayer, they used to make all these poisons and toxic crap, which is why I’ll buy their food and “vitamins” supplements!”

        • Bayer was also tied to the Nazi’s , they and Monsanto are are scumbags!!

          • The most deluded fairy tale believers are the clowns who think “first there was nothing, then it exploded” whose minds are far too closed and imaginations far too small to consider that there is more to life than what our minds can perceive.

            The most deluded religious ideal that exists is the religion called “Atheism”.

  • I’d also keep an eye on insurance companies/corporations’ value to basically prove the hypocrisy.

  • the CDC & the FDA are another swamp in need draining, they are supposed to protect the people from the harmful practices of corporations which care only for profit – instead these bodies have been helping these corporations kill people for profit

    Dr William Thompson of the CDC went whistle blower admitting they deliberately destroyed evidence PROVING the link between vaccinations and autism spectrum disorders

    another swamp to drain,, the medical industrial complex & the government bodies facilitating them

  • All he’d have to do is open up The U.S. to the Canadian pharma industry . Their quality control is better and their prices are in most cases substantially less expensive along with a close proximity to the U.S. so shipping them in bulk wouldn’t be expensive .

    • I am an old guy with old guy medical problems, I treat them all myself. Fuck doctors and their dope suppliers.

      I have prostate problems that I use herbs for, I keep my blood pressure down with food and herbs. I had an ulcer for years and completely cured it with the bark of a south american plant, after doctors just feeding me pills for it that screwed me up for decades.
      I don’t eat at most fake food places, and when I do I go to a hamburger shop that makes me a fresh burger, not some heat lamp microwave nasty leftover shit that has a burger on it that has been laying in a metal pan.
      I keep reefer around for my joints, and that shit works for days, I get stoned one or two nights a week and it acts like an anti-inflamatory and my joints do well for days after.

      If I break a leg, fine, take my ass to the doc to set it. Other than that, I am more afraid of the medical industry than I am diseases.

      I am doing better now than when I was still young and letting docs talk me into being a drug addict.

      I let docs ruin my health with drugs, I was doing just fine until a doctor convinced me that my cholesterol being over 600 and triglycerides over 800 was a death sentance and talked me into taking their dope. My health went downhill after that.
      No shit, they are both that high. One time my triglycerides came in at 1300. The docs were freaking out, wanted to put me in a university hospital to study me and treat me.

      I have not let a doc take my blood for cholesterol in 20 years. I am still alive, and the pancreatitis and heart problems the docs told me were going to kill me didn’t happen.

      And now of course, I am reading that people who have high cholesterol live longer that those who don’t.

  • If Trump brings these murdering money grabbing demons to book he will be my hero for life, and if he brings the FDA to justice and locks the devils up I might even make an idol to him “joke” take Bill Gates to the Guillotine for mass murder and I will never doubt him again.

  • The SHTF a long time ago, but we are so dumbed down we never noticed the splat.

  • Perhaps they will go out of business entirely and people will learn to deal with their health with food and natural cures again, and the overall health of society will improve significantly.

  • There is only one way; My way. I stand for TORAH Law! I am here to restore My Father’s Kingdom.

    • another deluded fairy-tale believer – you should fit in here quite well

    • The only deluded fairy tale belivers are the clowns who think “first there was nothing, then it exploded” whose minds are far too closed and imaginations far too small to consider that there is more to life than what our minds can perceive.

      The most deluded religious ideal that exists is the religion called “Atheism”.

      • quite right – the first law of thermodynamics proves the universe wasn’t created & has always existed, it also proves the Big Bang was nothing more than an “alteration of form” in accordance with the first law

        seeing the universe was not created, there can be no creator

        quite right again about the closed minds, they’re called religious people and rather than accept reality, or accept that they simply don’t know, they prefer the delusions of religious fairy-tale indoctrination

        um, atheism isn’t a religion – atheism is the rejection of religious claims, due to a complete and utter lack of evidence substantiating said religious claims :eek:

        • The laws of thermodynamics dictate mindful creation. The laws of thermodynamics imply that heat moves toward absence of heat ( cold) and that there is no possible way the universe is as old as some scientists claim, being that if it was that old everything would be the same temperature by now.

          Atheism is indeed a relligion.
          Religion is simply the attempt of men to determine who is at the top of the intellectual totem.
          Those who are open minded enough to recognize a creator think it is the creator. Some believe it is aleins. Atheists believe it is themselves.

          Not only is atheism a religion, those who practice it seem to be among the most adamantly pious and aggressively evangelical about it.

          • the laws of thermodynamics dictate nothing of the kind – you assume & presume yet provide zero evidence to substantiate your claim

            in this instance you make the following claim:
            “The laws of thermodynamics dictate mindful creation”
            have you got any EVIDENCE to substantiate this claim? or only conjecture, opinion & appeals to authority etc?

            the rest of your comments about thermodynamics demonstrate the comprehension skills of a year 8 school student – immutable natural LAW do not imply

            atheism is no more a religion than not believing in unicorns is a religion – atheism is the REJECTION of religious claims due to a lack of substantiating evidence – the fact you think it’s a religion exposes your ignorance & hubris

            atheists DO NOT BELIEVE & i for one certainly do not believe anything created a universe which was not created

            the FACT is “no matter nor energy can be created nor destroyed, only it’s form can be altered” – you got any evidence to prove it wrong?

          • I didn’t say a thing about who created the universe, what has that got to do with religion? Tribes that worship the thunder God of the mountain don’t think he created the universe.

            And you obviously have not studied the laws of thermodynamics and can merely recite rhetoric about science you have been drilled with.
            The laws of physics ARE the evidence.
            Atheism is a religion. Again, religion is the quest to determine who is at the top of the intellectual food chain.
            The closed minded of the world naively believe they are the top of the intellectual totem and that they know the answer, the answer to them is that humans are as big as intellect gets.

            If you believe in little green men and that they have some power over us , then you believe them to be “God”.

            If you believe there is no intelligence, and therefore power, greater than you, then you believe that you are “God”.

          • another unsubstantiated claim:
            “Tribes that worship the thunder God of the mountain don’t think he created the universe.” – how the hell do you know for sure? you got some evidence to substantiate your claim?? course not, what a silly question

            the laws of physics are indeed the evidence, which is why i correctly state that the first law proves the universe wasn’t created

            but YOU claimed that these laws DICTATE mindful creation, i asked you for substantiating evidence, and as usual, you merely switched & baited, because you’ve got NOTHING to substantiate your claim

            atheism is no more a religion than not believing in unicorns is a religion – your refusal to accept this simple fact correlates to your denial of all other simple facts

            now you make another claim:
            “The closed minded of the world naively believe they are the top of the intellectual totem and that they know the answer” you got some evidence to substantiate your claim? same as your other claim right? NADA

            and further you claim :
            “the answer to them is that humans are as big as intellect gets.”
            you got any evidence to substantiate this claim? course not

            then you claim:
            “If you believe in little green men and that they have some power over us , then you believe them to be “God”.”
            let me guess, no evidence to support this claim either? because i know there are vastly more advanced civilizations than ours, but i sure as hell don’t believe them to be gods, any more than i consider Einstein a god

            also:
            “If you believe there is no intelligence, and therefore power, greater than you, then you believe that you are “God”.”
            i’ve absolutely no doubt you have no evidence to substantiate this claim either – and i certainly do not consider ANY living thing to be any type of god, mainly because gods don’t exist

            not bad for an 8th grade student, but you’ve a very long way to come yet

            no need for further responses, your switch n baits, diversionary tactics, outrageous unsubstantiated claims and your utter failure to substantiate a SINGLE ONE of your claims means i have already wasted far too much time talking to this particular wall

            once you’ve concluded grade 8 etc, once you’ve concluded uni & mastered ANYTHING, then perhaps we can continue

        • Andy claimed…

          “the universe wasn’t created & has always existed”

          … so lets be having the evidence that substantiates your claim.

          Any proof that a habitable earth has existed beyond 6,000 years will do for a start. I’ll wait.

          • the evidence is the first law of thermodynamics:
            “no matter nor energy can be created nor destroyed, only it’s form can be altered” – this is immutable, universal law, proven100% accurate, 100% of the time, for 100% of the observable universe, both micro & macro and without exception

            “no matter nor energy can be created” – seeing the universe is made of matter & energy, it CANNOT have been created

            seeing it wasn’t created, there was be no creator – pretty simple huh?

            what has the earth to do with this fact? but seeing you asked, check out the sunken city of Dwarka,, dated (using as many as 19 different methods of radio dating) to be about 30,000 years old

          • Finally i got you to mention “radio [carbon] dating”, Andy, as evidence of, presumably, millions or billions of years.

            I’ll get to that after work tomorrow but in the mean time would you answer another question that has to do with the 1st law of thermodynamics? Do you believe the universe is expanding?

            Oh and what does the earth have to do with the fact? Isn’t it part of the universe? I mean how many planets/stars/moons have been subjected to radio carbon dating?

          • where did i mention radio carbon dating? i said as many as 19 different types of radiometric dating were used – did you even know there are 19 different methods of radiometric dating? carbon dating being but ONE of them

            it is irrelevant whether or not the universe is expanding and has no bearing on the first law – as it happens, the evidence which suggests expansion is severely flawed as the scientific community is entirely disregarding the most important science regarding the universe – Electric Universe theory

            i am part of the universe too, but i’m only 50 – does that mean the universe is only 50 because i’m only 50? course not

            about a dozen bodies in our solar system have been dated using as many as 19 different radiometric dating methods, only ONE of which is carbon dating, which can ONLY be used to date things that were biologically living (or contain the remains of that which was once biologically living)

            look fwd to your next post

          • Concluded grade 8?
            Once you’ve learned the definition of “concluded” and learned to use it in a sentence, as well as learn some basic punctuation, then get back with me and attempt to discuss physics.

            You are obviously simply reciting the Atheist religious rhetoric without any real knowledge .

            And, BTW, I know that many tribes believe in a “god” of some kind that they do not believe created the universe ( and indeed , some of whom haven’t a clue that there is a universe)
            because I have been a student of religion since I was a child, which was a long time ago.
            Atheism is among the religions I have studied.

          • You didn’t mention radiocarbon dating, Andy, i did. No need to be so defensive, or pedantic, given all methods of radiometric dating suffer from the same assumptions. Assumptions, Andy, is that what you call science? Here let me explain.

            1: Radiometric dating attempts to establish a clock whereby unobserved historical events can be chronologically ordered. The thing with clocks is…

            a) – They must run at a constant rate.

            b) – They must be certifiably accurate at the start of the period being measured.

            c) – No disruptions or resetting allowed.

            Point (a) assumes that environmental levels of isotopes (carbon, potassium, uranium etc etc) have remained constant throughout history. Science accepts this assumption based on nothing more than observations spanning little more than 100 years. Does arguing events spanning millions/billions of years based on only the last 100-yrs sound reasonable, sensible or logical, if so, we could end this discussion right here.

            Point (b) cannot be reliably ascertained because “we” weren’t there to observe the periods in question nor are there any reliable records to fall back on.

            Point (c) is only necessary if the first two points are assumed to be fact which they aren’t for the reasons i’ve already outlined.

            … so right off the bat, Andy, there’s a whole heap of “facts” that must be accepted as a matter of faith.

            2: Radiometric dating is utterly reliant on 3 main assumptions…

            a) – The rate of decay is a constant.

            b) – The sample exists in a closed system.

            c) – The sample only contained parental elements in the beginning.

            Point (a) cannot be ascertained because such records only began around 100-yrs ago. Known radiometric dating failures (like decades old volcanic rocks being assigned ages in the millions of years, like live snails/molluscs being dated in the tens of thousands of years, like freshly killed seals being dated in centuries etc etc) have cast a shadow over any argument for continuity.

            Point (b) requires that environmental effects (like floods, like erosion, like climatic variables etc etc) be ignored.

            Point (c) is rendered extremely unlikely given many isotopes are mobile. For example Helium, Argon and Radon (from 3 different radiometric dating methods) are able to move through rock let alone biological specimens.

            … so once again, Andy, the question is are these assumptions reasonable, sensible and logical?

            I look forward to your in depth rebuttal.

          • Oh and, Andy, the Electric Universe Theory isn’t scientific and when i get home from work tomorrow i’ll show you why that is.

            Faith, Andy, you have it in spades and yet you call it “science” all the while calling my faith “fairy-tales”.

            Pfft!

          • I expect Andy will get to this eventually and i hope he brings something other than mere opinion. However if it is to be opinion then at least Andy’s credentials might surpass the likes of this.

            “The troubles of the radiocarbon dating method are undeniably deep and serious … It should be no surprise, then, that fully half of the dates are rejected. The wonder is, surely, that the remaining half come to be accepted.”

            Lee, R. E. (Ph. D) – Radiocarbon, “Ages in Error”, Anthropological Journal of Canada, 1981, vol. 19, No. 3, pages 9-29

          • lo, EU theory isn’t scientific huh? may i ask what qualifications, personal experimentation or experience you have to disqualify the theory?

          • you did a very good job of switch & bait and i fell for it

            the first law of thermodynamics is the proof – address my proof rather than switch/baiting

            the earth could be 52 years old for all i care

            you claim the universe was created – please provide evidence to substantiate the claim

          • That’s not right, Andy, for i quoted you then addressed your point (as anyone can see) and it’s only now that you are losing that you want to drag this back to something you imagine to be beyond argument.

            I cannot refute the 1st Law of Thermodynamics because it is an especially relative concept ie it only relates to this post creation world not God because miracles. Just like i can’t prove, to a scientific certainty, that God exists.

            My argument is that God created this closed system, the universe, and an important part of it lasting as long as God desires are the irrefutable laws as known to the sciences.

            It’s called faith, Andy, just like your faith in radiometric dating as i have previously shown.

  • Dr. Otto Warburg got the medicine Nobel Price in 1933 for finding out that the pathogens like illnesses causing bacteria and viruses cannot live in an environment whose pH>7 or alkaline. When I learned that fact, I tried it on myself and what is the result? I have been healthy for more than one half of a year until today, even now in the middle of a severe flu season when almost all other old people like me go to get a flu vaccination. I only put about 1/4 of a tea spoon-ful of baking soda in my tea every morning and evening. It seems to be enough to prevent me from getting ill although in my early years, I contracted every passing by epidemic. It even keeps my mouth healthy, and my old teeth have become white.

    Earlier, I used another method, a bit of three substances each, Sodium-Chlorite, Citric-Acid and Borax in a beverage like tea, chocolate or coffee. That mixture I call the SoCiBo. It healed me effectively every time when I was ill, even severely ill for years, but of course, I always want to use a simpler method if it works properly. The Warburg’s method works but I keep the SoCiBo as a back-up for a possible very bad illness like the small box, a multiple resistant tuberculosis and the like.

    Jesus Christ, Yeshua be blessed!

    • Those like yourself who make every attempt they can to work their religious opinions into all conversations including but not limited to shouting out religious catch phrases , no matter how inappropriate the situation, help inspire those like Andy to NOT believe.

      One of the reasons I defected from the bogus “Christianity” that has little in common with the teachings of Jesus or Paul is because of people who are assholes about their faith and feel the need to constantly attempt to “spread the faith” by being offensive with it.
      Which never made a bit of sense to me.

      A bit of wisdom for you:
      Being someone others are attracted to want to be like will likely get them interested in what you are about.

      Being someone who repels others with constantly making everything about THEIR religious opinion is likely to disgust others with what they are about, often permanently.

  • Good , maybe they’ll quit advertising on my TV every 15 minutes. My friend has to go to Canada to buy his Insulin. It is 1/10th the cost there versus in the states. PLUS he doesn’t need a prescription in Canada. He buys large quantities. 280 dollars there or 2800 dollars here. A result of Obamacare. Big pharma is totally out of control.

  • $25 billion peanuts – Cost them Everything with the click of a button………
    Be friendly – Human body is host to organisms – microbes – and bacteria all capable of eradicating cancers and many other diseases…… Primary perception by Cleve Baxter………….
    This is the only book by Cleve Backster himself, describing 36 years of research in biocommunication, observed electrical responses in plant life and other living organisms. All life forms have the capability of responding to one another, from plants and bacteria to foods and animal cells. Most amazing is his work with human leukocytes. These discoveries have opened up a new paradigm in science, ecology and healing.
